Global CI (Busywork)

All “official” QIIME 2 plugins, interfaces, and user-documentation are tested and built using an in-house build system known as Busywork. The current state of the development versions of all QIIME 2 packages can be viewed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week there. The source repository for Busywork can be found at Developers interested in having their plugin built there should first consult the Publishing a Plugin documentation to learn about the requirements necessary for integration with this build system.


While there is no “official” definition of what makes a QIIME 2 plugin “official”, for now we are considering plugins that are maintained as part of the organization (and subsequently, built and maintained by the QIIME 2 development team) to be official QIIME 2 products. This definition might change in the future.
